Left foot braker for Arcade racing games because that's a rally driver's footwork :P

However my days driving around the joint I'm a right foot braker due to the right, trying to get use to a bit of heel-toe too, doing hilarious time attacks from home to McDonalds LMAO!~

i always use my left foot for braking, i have pretty big feet so if i used my right i'd press the break and accelerator and knock my left foot about too and get all disoriented lol

Right-foot braking= Noob
Left-foot braking= Semi-Pro

No-braking-just-letting-off-the-gas= Semi-Noob
No-braking-just-downshifting-and-drift= Pro
Hitting-the-wall-when-that-happens= Noob

Wall bounce technique= Semi-Pro

Ok, just by looking at this I can tell you don't know to play properly or you haven't seen real speed yet.

Don't count on that. The best guy at the arcade is the fastest on all courses and he rarely brakes.

Your arcade must be full of slow people then, probably guys that just keep trying to take the crown in ghost battle...

no wonder your rims keep spinning everytime you stops... :lol:
Doesn't the car slides a lot when you did it (brake+gas)?? Especially the Fairlady Z33 :huh:

@Kenji

haha nice one :shifty:

hmm actually i feel that the car is a lot more in control while doing it. releasing the gas makes the car grip the road and slows it at the same time. that is why i let is slide B)

@FAME*

who's slogan? mine?

I think break or no break also depends on the line you travel through the corners
you also have to consider your HP to determine how much u break

I don't think anyone can go 820HP on Hanshin without breaking

I tried to not break, but that takes a lot of techniques especially controlling the accelerator, try not to break on C1in with 740HP, just tap on the accel on the corners...it gets hard with some of the zigzag turns...

Two red turns on Hanshin require the brake unless you walltap, and even then...

There's one red turn though that you should come out of at around 270 without letting off the gas or braking.

I use my left foot to brake in MT3, irl I use my right foot.

Same here.

I'm improving. I'm using all of my techniques I used in the past and using them to create another technique that helps me getting closer to Lazy_Drifter.
